Ryan had been sidelined since the first series of a Nov. 29 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His replacement, Chris Redman, lost two consecutive starts. Turner missed three of the last four games because of a recurring ankle sprain.
Falcons starting defensive end Jamaal Anderson (chest) was inactive and replaced by Chauncey Davis. Cornerback Chris Houston (hamstring) also wasn't active, with Brent Grimes filling in for Atlanta. Right guard Harvey Dahl (ankle) missed his third consecutive start and was replaced by Quinn Ojinnaka.
Jets center Nick Mangold, who missed two days of practice with an illness, was active and in the starting lineup. The Jets' inactives were wide receiver David Clowney, offensive lineman Robert Turner, quarterback Kevin O'Connell, cornerback Marquice Cole, running back Chauncey Washington and linebackers Kenwin Cummings and Marques Murrell. Erik Ainge was the No. 3 quarterback.
